I'm sure others here came across this article last week (as did I). Still, I can't help but wonder what was discussed during the interview, for the author to make such a bold statement (especially the part bolded in red):
'...an attempt to record a follow-up to 2010’s Intriguer a few years prior to that was such a fiasco that Finn decided to shelve the entire project.'
Does anyone else think maybe this was the beginning-of-the-end for the previous lineup?
I went back and re-watched some of the 2016 ENCORE performance, and as great as they were, they don't come close to the 2021 To The Island show...
BTW - during the To The Island show, Neil paid Mitchell Froom a compliment about the Organ solo on Don't Dream It's Over, and in doing so kind of threw Mark under the bus. Something along the lines of 'Nobody else could pull it off' or 'nobody else ever came close'.
